Midweek Morning Hike

Pace: Moderate -- in our group that means up and down Atalaya in 2 1/2 hours or less, 4 miles, 1800' elevation gain. If you are a new member and are not positive you can go at this pace, please call Dave Gold in advance.

We will go somewhere along Hyde Park Road or maybe the Tesuque River. We will choose a place depending on who shows up. If appropriate we will divide into a moderate and strenuous group. Dave leads the moderate group. There are many pretty options to choose from and we will accommodate people .

We always have a fun adventure. We will meet at 8:00 AM, hike for approximately 2 1/2 hours, and try to be back at the cars between 11:30 and 12:00.


We will meet on the street that goes INTO the Fort Marcy Complex, NOT the parking FOR the complex. This is so we don't use spaces they need for their patrons. Then we will carpool up somewhere, about a 10-15 minutes drive. If you look at it will get you close, but doesn't show the entrance road. Artist Road turns into the entrance road to the Fort Marcy Recreational Complex. So coming from downtown, make a left into the complex at the Artist Road light, and park on the side of the entrance road. Dave's cell is[masked] if you're lost or running late. NOTE: If you sign up as Yes, but can't make it PLEASE call me, so we don't wait unnecessarily. Thanks!

    After yesterday's rain this hike was perfect with the water running in the usually dry stream beds. Thank you once again, Dave. The walking cocktail party conversations are always great.

    Wanted so much to go, rain or shine, but work is keeping me up till 2 am, and don't think will be able to make it. Swimming in the rain is the next best thing. Will miss you guys!

      Last week the entrance to Ft. Marcy park was closed off and the Mtn Goat Hike was aborted (for me anyway). I recommend we either establish a different meeting place or at least have an alternate identified in the event traffic is closed into the park.

    Work yet again. So sorry to miss you!

    Lina heads for Colorado next Sunday (30th) so this will be Lina's last mid-week hike for who knows how long.
